Dog disc injuryHi all, I'm new to the site and looking for some advice about my dog. He's a 7yr old cavalier king charles, generally anxious of other dogs - except when they're on the TV, when he goes mad barking and jumping up at the screen! He's friendly with most people but nervous with children. He dribbles a lot when nervous, particularly in the car.
2 days ago I think a box must have fallen on him as when I got home he wasn't using his right leg and the box was on the floor. Took him to the vet this morning who said it's probably a disc injury. Was thinking of giving him some arnica and/or hypericum but was wondering if anyone had a more constitutional suggestion. He likes most food, particularly egg, tea, meat and fish. He's very playful although will not give something up if he thinks it's rightfully his. He has a bit of a temper occasionally - can snap at the vet or at us if we're trying to e.g. clean his eyes.
Many thanks in advance,

hypericum i do not have an idea but my homeo vet had prescribed that for a nervous problem in my bird, but it can have different uses too. try giving in small dose of 30c or even less if u want to try. im not a doc there wud be sum1 arnd who would advise u. But my vet had told me to give arnica for any injury & better if given immediately.
good luck with ur dog
